> Kismet seems to get confused about what is a wired or wireless client on the network. In my experience, under the client listing, just about everything gets listed as a probable wired client.
> What is does Kismet use to make the decision as to what to list a client as? I'm sure it has something to do with the to DS/From DS flags in the header. If the communication is between two wireless clients via an AP, the frame shows up in the collect twice; once from a STA and once from the DS. I think this is confusing the decision metric for Kismet.

From_ds/to_ds determines what a client looks like. If the frames are all from_ds, then the client is assumed to be wired. Theres no way to tell other than that.
